How the Gospel Speaks to Anger

We all know what anger looks and feels like. But most of us don’t know much about this emotion and where it comes from. Is anger always a bad thing or could it at times actually be a picture of God’s own heart in a situation?

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast we look at the source of our anger, how so much of it is disordered love, and how the gospel speaks to anger.

If we find ourselves angry about getting snubbed on social media, or being cut off in traffic, or going unrecognized for work, or having an idea shut down, or feeling underappreciated by our spouse… the problem might be that we love ourselves too much!

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Where the different types of anger come from.
  • When and why Jesus got angry.
  • The 3 Levels of anger we experience.
  • Three steps for dealing with our anger in light of Gospel truth.

how gospel speaks anger

From this episode:

“God and Jesus both displayed times of their anger. But they were never angry for their own benefit. They were angry at the destruction and loss of relationship that words and actions of people were causing. Too often our anger is self-love, and we hold on to it until it eats us up inside or drives a permanent wedge between us and others.”
